To Be sure that the bondo has a fine taper all the way to the edge. Just like a natural ear. All of my Pa students have used epley ear liners. With Key Ear epoxy to bond them. card the edges for a few days, and you will have a marvelous looking ear. Be sure to get every bit of cartilage out. if you use this method. Paul will feel the tips.
